U.S. District Judge James M. navigate to this websiteMunley on Friday signed an order dismissing the complaint filed by John Richards, saying the lawsuit has been settled. referenceTerms of the settlement were not disclosed. Richards filed suit last year alleging the district unjustly ousted him based on a political decision made in a back room meeting last June and that the board replaced him with Joseph Caprari, the union secretary and a past president of the unions fundraising committee. The Pittston Area Federation of Teachers Local 1590 was also named in the suit for allegedly failing to represent Richards interests in a hostile, discriminatory and dishonest manner. The defendants denied the allegations.

In the blog post, Wolinetz said the NIH was creating a steering committee that would advise NIH officials on funding decisions regarding early embryonic human-animal chimeras. Research conducted with nonhuman primate embryos would only be supported after a certain stage of embryonic development, she wrote. For now, the NIH is asking for feedback on the proposed rule changes through Sept. 4. The blog post also said that the NIH is not going to fund research that involves the breeding of chimeras that include human egg or sperm cells. In theory, that could lead to a mostly human embryo being carried in a mouse womb, which would presumably be miscarried. Human-mouse chimeras have been used in studies for decades, but as scientists started transplanting brain tissue in more recent years, the ethical issues were kicked up a notch. Such research could provide new insights into conditions like Alzheimers and schizophrenia , but some people were left uneasy with the idea that a mouse could gain human cognition. Advocates for animal welfare have also questioned the impact of tissue transplants on the animal recipients. In a call with reporters Thursday, Wolinetz said that with new advances in the stem cell field and gene-editing technology, weve begun to creep a little bit closer to the science leading to some of those ethical concerns. Thats why the NIH decided to take a deep breath and pause in September, Wolenitz said.
